    ETA- California also went shall issue the day after the SCOTUS ruling. Maryland can't hold off for long.

    Plan on joining MSI and scheduling my 16hr class soon but going to hold off on the application till someone gets approved for self defense or Maryland at-least comes back as a shall issue state. Afraid of getting denied and having my Florida revoked because of the denial.

    Thanks for the update SG. Does anyone know of a place near ANP who does finger prints and photos for reasonable prices? I have used a google search and didn't come up with much.
    I think the MSP website has a list. I may be wrong though.
    I just looked at the FAQ page and the link is dead.

    It's been I few years, but I think I remember getting my Livescan fingerprints for my HQL in 2013 at Mid-Atlantic Regional Investigations at 1202 West St. in Annapolis. They don't have a website that I can find, but their phone is (410)280-1409 according to Google. It was quick and they were pretty inexpensive at the time.

    There also appears to be a new place on Riva Road,

    G-d bless you SG, et al, for posting up your experiences.

    I am, to quote Little Bill, "a cowardly (and lazy) son of a bitch", and will wait to see what plays out.

    I hope and pray you're all packing heat post haste.

    Good luck to all y'all!!!!!

    I wish I could be packing heat by July 10. If I could somehow make the Pastrami meet up and be packing, I would be "Pretty Pleased Protected and Pastrami'd"

    I'm taking the same posture...

    If this works as planned, it should be sticky'd(if I may be so bold...)

    MY hypothesis is they aren't going to advertise going shall issue, but if they deny those of us who applied since Thursday for not having G&S, they would be in direct violation of a SCOTUS order. I doubt even Frosh wants to open that can of worms.

    I wouldn't be surprised if MSP takes no action either way on post-ruling applications until MDAG has provided them complete guidance.
